Candy Axed, “Schumer” & “High” Picked Up

Comedy Central has announced that it has given a fourth-season renewal to “Inside Amy Schumer,” a day before the third season premiere goes to air. The renewal comes following Schumer’s well-received if low-rated MTV Movie Awards hosting gig along with her starring role in Judd Apatow’s “Trainwreck”.

TV Land’s single-camera comedy “Younger” has also scored a pick up for a second season. The Darren Star-produced series is set to garner a second season of twelve episodes. The story follows a recently divorced 40-year-old mother (Foster) who gets a makeover in a bid to re-enter the workforce and appear as a 20-something.

Not so fortunate is MTV’s freshman drama “Eye Candy”. The show’s star Victoria Justice has confirmed that the series has been canceled and will not return for a second season. The ten episode series debuted in January and averaged 592,000 total viewers during its run. It’s not all doom and gloom for the network though as they have renewed scripted comedy “Faking It” for a third season.

Finally, HBO has picked up the breakout Vimeo series “High Maintenance”. The network has picked up the show for six new episodes and will make available the past nineteen episodes via HBO, HBO Now, and HBO Go. Those nineteen episodes are currently available on Vimeo, but whether that will remain the case is unclear right now.
